It was difficult to persuade parents in Katsina state of Nigeria to allow their children to be immunized against polio.

 it was difficult to persuade parents in Katsina state to allow their children to be immunized against polio

Until recently, it was difficult to persuade parents in Katsina state to allow their children to be immunized against polio as they were wary about the vaccine and were not convinced it was important.
The state taskforce on immunization has turned the situation around, changing its approach to work directly with communities – explaining why immunization is so important to protect children and reassuring parents about safety. The taskforce also worked closely with former vaccine opponents like Nasir – here holding his 8 month-old son Ahmed being immunized against polio – who have since become vaccine supporters! Nasir has convinced the parents of 37 children in his community who were previously against vaccination to have their children vaccinated as well.
